I looked at a late '80s Hunter 40 a few months ago while in the market. Though I didn't notice any cracks in the hull (it was in the water) - there were cracks everywhere else on that boat. The cockpit sole (at the sidewall) was cracked all the way around. The area around the cockpit speakers was cracked like someone had leaned on it too hard (how does that happen), cracks around the winches, and the interior around the main hatch was showing quite few cracks.

Maybe it was owned by a family of Sumo-s. I didn't ask.

But it sure looked pretty cheesy so I didn't look at any more Hunters.
